Why We Like The Yeti SB160 T3 X01 Eagle AXS Carbon Wheels Mountain Bike
The SB160 T3 X01 Eagle AXS Carbon Wheels Mountain Bike from Yeti represents the cutting edge of what modern enduro bikes are capable of. Yeti revised their Switch Infinity linkage design with more strength for a solid feel on the trail. The rear suspension now offers 160mm of forgiving travel that produces loads of traction on technical trails, and it's paired with a burly 170mm fork to inspire plenty of confidence. The SB160 features a 64-degree head tube angle that further bolsters its descending stability, making this bike feel at home on race stages and bike park laps. What really impresses us about the SB160, however, is its ability to keep things interesting on mellow flow trails and zip right up long climbs efficiently. Between the fast-rolling 29in wheels, steep 77.5-degree seat tube angle, and supportive Switch Infinity linkage, the SB160 is impressively capable for big days in the saddle with plenty of vertical gain.
This T3 build from Yeti leaves little to be desired, featuring top-spec components across the board. It's built on Yeti's TURQ carbon layup, their lightest construction, delivering an efficient feel over multi-stage race days. The drivetrain features a mixture of X01, XX1, and GX components, including the XX1 AXS derailleur that delivers instant electronic shifting for those last-minute gear changes. Yeti utilizes Fox Factory suspension, with a Factory Float X2 shock and Factory 38 GRIP2 fork that supply tons of adjustment for fine-tuning your suspension on race day. This build also features DT Swiss EXC1501 carbon wheels which are impressively durable and deliver a reactive feel on the trail, thanks to their stiff design. This top-tier build is ideal for racing enduro and linking high-alpine climbs with steep descents.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
